T-2 Back on sale at US Sony Bookstore
I just checked - The Sony T-2 is back on sale at the Sony Bookstore for US customers - only the black version is offered - the red is marked as discontinued. The black version seems to be on back-order! Here is the text:
"Coming Soon. We will notify you when the product becomes available
My guess is that they are drawing in unsold units from other countries and selling them in the USA; they may be delayed by having to repackage them into English Language boxes.
My guess is that when they have finally sold off the last of the T-2's then they will finally release the T-3 to the USA market.
In the mean time, the T-3 has been restored to the Canadian page.

Had a faulty T1 replaced with a like-new T2 the other day. Have to say, the T2 is a nice piece of kit.

Looks like Sony found some old readers hidden someplace and good price.
Kobo Mini has 5 inch touch screen in smaller over all size and only on/off switch. 2gig internal memory but easy to clone internal memory to larger micro sd card and swop it with original memory. No external memory slot. I bought my Kobo mini for $40. on discount which happens now and then.

I suspect this is the end of the Sony Readers. I had to do a search to even find them, they've been removed from the opening page.

Doing a search on the Sony Store (US) for "ereader" it shows all older models as
"DISCONTINUED. CONTACT US FOR OTHER OPTIONS: 877-865-7669"
--don't bother calling the rep was clueless.

I still use my 505, but with sony not selling the t3 in the US gave me the indication that they were in fact going to shutdown their reader line so I bought a refurbished t2 on eBay. I am pleased with it, but I'm keeping it on reserve until my 505 is no longer useful.

My 505 still works fine too, although it's a bit slow compared to more modern devices.
